More than a "he begat"
Updated: Jan 28, 2020
“And Ahitub begat Zadok, and Zadok begat Ahimaaz.” I Chronicles 6:8
Have you ever tried reading the genealogies in the Bible? Boring right? I mean how exciting can it be to read: “And Ahitub begat Zadok, and Zadok begat Ahimaaz.” The only thing some of these guys accomplished in life was: be born have kids and die. How exciting!
Don’t be too quick to criticize. You also are in danger of becoming a member of the family tree.
Do you want to be more than that? Do want to make your mark on the world? Then start at John 7:38, “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.”
If you believe on Jesus Christ, you can be a person that is the source of life for many people. I’m not talking about mere physical life here. The Bible states that you can give life to the whole person, the one that’s inside. If you would stop focusing on yourself and start learning of Christ, you would become a person with answers to life, someone who everyone wants to be like.
When the writer of John said that rivers of water would come from your soul, he was telling you that many people that you would never know would come to drink from your life. Your influence would reach way beyond yourself and your generation.
Think about it! The possibilities are endless. The future is forever. All of this simply by putting your all into believing on Jesus Christ.
